PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon Corrections Department spokeswoman says the state expects to recover much of the $18,000 it spent on drugs it had planned to use to execute a Death Row inmate.
The Democratic governor also announced in late November that Oregon would not execute any other condemned inmates during his tenure in office.
He called Oregon's death penalty "compromised and inequitable."
Spokeswoman Jeanine Hohn tells The Oregonian that a reverse wholesaler has already retrieved the drugs.
It's not yet clear how much of a "restocking fee" the state will have to pay.
The drugs included pentobarbital sodium, pancuronium bromide and potassium chloride.
